Apple Harvest Oatmeal
Autumn brings a colorful change of season and colder weather. Start your day with a warm, hearty breakfast made with fresh, seasonable apples. In addition to tasting great, apples are rich in health-promoting antioxidants. They’re also an excellent source of fiber, potassium, and vitamins A and C. So take advantage of plentiful apples... use them in pies, breads, salads, sliced and dipped in sauces, or eat them whole. They're a healthy choice anytime of year.
1 ½ cup soy, grain, or nut milk 1 ½ cup water 1 ½ cup old-fashioned oats 1 cup chopped apple (approximately 1/4" cubes) 2 Tbs. raisins 2 Tbs. pecans, chopped (optional) 2 Tbs. brown sugar ½ tsp. cinnamon
In a medium saucepan, bring (soy, grain, or nut) milk and water to a boil.
Stir in remaining ingredients and cook until thick.
Cover, let stand a few minutes, and enjoy. Serves 2-3.

Eating lots of fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans and whole grains is an effective way to ward off kidney stones, according to a study appearing in an upcoming issue of the Journal of the American Society Nephrology.
Researchers collected information from people enrolled in three clinical studies: the Health Professionals Follow-up Study (45,821 men followed for 18 years), the Nurses' Health Study I (94,108 older women followed for 18 years) and the Nurses' Health Study II (101,837 younger women followed for 14 years). Each participant was scored based on eight components of a DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) style diet: high intake of fruits, vegetables, nuts and legumes, and whole
grains and low intake of salt, sweetened beverages, and red and processed meats. People with higher DASH scores consumed more calcium, potassium, magnesium, oxalate, and vitamin C and less sodium.
In each study, those with the highest DASH scores were between 40% and 45% less likely to develop kidney stones than those with the lowest DASH scores; reduction of kidney stone risk was independent of age, body size, fluid intake, and other factors.
Since many medications used to treat kidney stones have unpleasant side effects, adopting a plant-based diet to prevent them is a better alternative.
Each year, more than 55 billion cows, pigs, turkeys, chickens and other sentient animals are abused and killed in the world’s factory farms and slaughterhouses. That’s 100,000 animals every minute.
October 2nd is World Farm Animals Day, which is dedicated to raising awareness about these innocent animals. The date also marks Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday. Caring people in 400 communities throughout all 50 U.S. states and 27 other countries are hosting World Farm Animals Day observances to spread the message of compassion.
